A film By the Remuda Western Club www.remuda.org.uk made in 1977-78, An amateur film made with an miniscule budget. The film was thought lost but a VHS tape ...
A lot of work and care went into making this, and it must have been great fun for those taking part, as well. Too bad the pictures are no longer crisp and it now looks like a murky shadow of what it once must have been.
All the films we made in the 70's were enjoyable to make. But i think A dollar a day was the hardest to make. We had to fit it in during a very long and hectic show season. Shooting scenes at the river location created many problems. We had to shoot here summer and winter. It shows in the continuity of the shots. If you look carefully, at the river i'm almost clean shaven. During the show season i shaved off to play a Cheyenne dog soldier. I have managed to find a few stills from the film and hope to stick em up asap.
Despite the video's degradation and lost scenes this is really well done.I like the black and white with the title cards-looks rather like a 1920's western."Hello chaps,I'm Cyril Bowles-Hamilton with a hyphen actually" is a priceless line,something like P.G.Wodehouse goes west.I really enjoyed the end with the Kiowa trying on the monocle.
